Almost every single person who has played a significant amount of Minecraft will agree that although the game is quite phenomenal, it can get rather lonely at times when you’re playing single player since the only person accompanying you is basically you. There are many mods out there that add companions into the game to make the experience more engaging and one of these mods is the Copious Dogs mod whish basically adds a ton of breeds into the game ranging from the cute Poodles to the fearsome German Shepherds. Designed by wolfpupKG52, it’s a mod that’s sure to impress.
Now, the question that usually comes to mind when discussing this mod is ‘why dogs?’ well the answer to that question is probably ‘why not’. Dogs are excellent companions in the real world and this has been mimicked excellently within the game itself so it’s something that all players will be very pleased with. The key highlight of this mo is the fact that it comes with a multitude of different breeds such as Huskies, Chihuahuas, Dalmatians and the developer is constantly working to add more breeds on a pretty regular basis. Each and every breed comes with a unique look of its own and has unique attributes as well which shows that a fair bit of effort has gone into designing this mod.
Onto the gameplay effects it brings, the spawns of Copious Dogs Mod are actually random and you don’t really have any control over them but one thing that’s consistent is that each breed has a specific spawn location. The Huskies for example only spawn in snowy biomes whereas the Bernese Mountain dogs only spawn in mountain biomes so you can use this information to your advantage if you’re looking for a specific breed.
Perhaps the best part about this mod is the fact that the dogs can be tamed. Once you encounter a dog you can feed it a dog biscuit and by doing so you’ll get a chance to successfully tame it. If you manage to succeed in doing so then you’ll be able wrap a leash and collar around your newly tamed dog which will cause it to follow you wherever you go which means that you’ll have a great companion for all your Minecraft endeavors.
All things considered, the Copious Dog mod is definitely a standout Minecraft 1.9 Mod that adds a lot of depth to the game.
